The Magento REST API defines a set of functions that a developer can use to perform requests and receive responses. These interactions are performed using the HTTP protocol.

The caller issues an HTTP request, which contains the following elements:

  • An HTTP header that provides authentication and other instructions
  • A verb, which can be one of GET, POST, PUT, or DELETE.
  • An endpoint, which is a Uniform Resource Indicator (URI) that identifies the server, the web service, and the resource being acted on.
  • The call payload, which is set of input parameters and attributes that you supply with the request.
